A preacher asked a dying man, “My friend, what persuasion are you?

The man replied, “I am of Paul’s persuasion.”

The preacher said, “I am afraid you didn’t understand me. Of what persuasion are you?

The man answered, “Oh, I understood you. I am of Paul’s persuasion.”

The preacher then said, “I’m afraid I don’t understand you. There is a Methodist persuasion, Baptist persuasion, Lutheran, Presbyterian, and Nazarene persuasion, but what do you mean by Paul’s persuasion?

The man smiled and then said, “I know Whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day.
